Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/Treatment
Experimental: Arm-A

SHR1210 (carrelizumab): 200 mg in combination with chemotherapy (described below) intravenously (IV), Q2W, and famitinib (10 mg) orally once daily (QD). This was followed by maintenance therapy with SHR1210 (carrelizumab) (200 mg, IV every 2 weeks [Q2W]) and famitinib (10 mg) orally once daily (QD) to complete treatment with a total duration of 1 year from the first dose.
